    Default DPS Warriors and Sabos getting the nerf bat

    its true http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...s-vs-Hot-fixes




    once again people might need to use skill to be good at the game rather then exploiting broken skills/mechanic to pretend they have skill

    People who let me put 5 charges on them, then detonate, then 5 charges again, then detonate will still be scrubs after the nerf.

    Without in any way gloating this is vindication for those that have been raising these issues and especially those who worked hard on proving specific talents were broken.
    It's also a sign that Trion have been quietly listening and actually have taken on board some of the top issues which the linked post addresses.

    Long may it continue.

    Whether or not the Saboteur is overpowered or not (I am not getting into that debate here), it doesn't matter. What matters most is all the *****ing and moaning that has been going on. If your Trion and you see paying customers doing that much complaining, you can bet there will be a change.

    This will go on for the life of the game, and each class will see their time come.

    Nice to see Trion listening. Though I am sure that Adam Gershowitz was one of the WAR devs, and we all know how that went...

    You must be doing something wrong. Most people don't get past the first five for me.

    Cast stealth

    Cast lost hope, blast charge x5 detonate. If still alive, blinding powder, blast charge x5 detonate. Woot I win.

    I play the spec and am glad its getting a much needed nerf.

    Maybe now attention will go to fixing damage from other rogue souls rather than the spotlight all on sabo's

    What level are you? I used to kill with the first round of 5 charges. Now, that is when the class was overpowered. At higher levels, if you can still do this, I'd like to know how.

    ^^^ So why didn't your opponent break the incapacitate CC? Or use one of many other defensive options. Or are you talking about the same thing any stealther should have which is initiative?

    Trion has already stated the game won't be balanced for just solo play.

    Mages need a universal detaunt mechanic against players from a significant loss in damage/healing ability so the fellow healers can react.

    It's also already been hinted that warriors CC will be put on the same cooldown and this reference post hints at the two/three warrior abilities that will be adjusted because of their damage output combo.

    For Sabos, the ticking comment might mean more of an audio notification since the class is so different from all the others and new players have a severe adjustment on how the Sabo class mechanic works (and how to react).

    actually the biggest problem with sabo was the infiltrator tree and only in pvp, i doubt they will change anything beyond the bugs that make us do too much dmg in pvp. cause in pve only the blast charge has a bug and it's a very good thing if that fix that. sure it will lower our dps some, but not by much at all since no one stacks 5 blast charges in pve. though i bet they will nerf the 15% bonus dmg from poisons too, so expect a flat 15% less dps on top of the blast charge change.

    but considering how low all the other dps specs are, i still bet we will be 300dps over the melee rogues...

    So... I kind of wonder if they're going to make any of the other DPS souls a bit more viable in PvE and PvP, if they're going to "tone down" Sab.

    Past the mid 30's you can't. Obviously that poster is in his/her 20's or lower. After your skill tree on Sab tops out, only increase to charge/detonate damage is limited.

    Is it just me or do i see no buffs to the other rogue roles. A sab nerf with a little warrior nerf but no other type of rogue buffs. I dont see this fixing the issue unless the nerf to warriors are big. Then rogues and warriors will be the low dps while the mages are supreme dps. Oh well.
